Emmy Nominees: Best Directing for a Comedy Series

My predictions: 4/7

The nominees: The Great (The Great), It’s Comedy or Cabbage (The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel), Marvelous Radio (The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel), Finale Part 2 (Modern Family), Miakhalifa.mov (Ramy), Happy Ending (Schitt’s Creek), We Love Lucy (Will and Grace)

I’m pleased with myself for predicting the Will and Grace episode that made the cut here, and I probably should have seen the Modern Family finale coming. Both episodes of The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel got in, as did the series finale of Schitt’s Creek. I’m very happy with the other two nominees, the pilot of The Great, a show which sadly underperformed, and a standout installment (though not the best of the season) of Ramy, which also didn’t do nearly as well as it should have.

What should win? I haven’t seen the “Modern Family” finale. It’s a toss-up between “The Great,” “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel,” and “Ramy.”
What will win? I think Will and Grace takes it.
